This oceanfront condo sits on a large grassy lawn between the Charley Young surf break and Kamaole I Beach—an ideal headquarters for active sun-seekers. Each unit in the small four-story building boasts a lanai with a marvelous view of the Pacific and islands on the horizon. All are individually owned and decorated, so the aesthetic varies widely. (The website features photos of each.) Studios feature queen-size Murphy beds, full bathrooms, and compact, full-service kitchens. The three one-bedroom penthouses—the only units with air conditioning—are the sweetest option. Kihei’s shops and restaurants are within walking distance.
